Moores enlists new star power for 2018 Canadian Suit Drive
Canadian retailer Moores Clothing for Men kicked off its Annual Canadian Suit Drive this week with Canadian actor Joshua Jackson. The actor marked the first donation to the cause at the retailer's downtown Toronto flagship store.
Now in its ninth edition, the Annual Canadian Suit Drive invites consumers to drop off gently used men's and women's professional attire at Moores store locations across Canada throughout July. The initiative is an effort to give unemployed individuals a chance to look their best as they transition back into the workforce.
"When Canadians donate to the Moores Suit Drive they are giving the transformative power of a suit to men and women in need," said Richard Bull, vice president of merchandising, Moores Clothing for Men, in a news statement. "The generosity of the supporters has a positive impact on our communities across the country."
Moores often teams up with an all-star team to promote its annual campaign. Last year, the retailer partnered with national television personality Rick Campanelli, Suits star, Patrick J. Adams, and head coach of the Toronto Raptors, Dwane Casey, to name a few. In the past, it has also partnered with Nick Cannon.
Since its inception, the Drive has collected close to 435,000 items of professional attire helping to dress hundreds of thousands of Canadians for job interviews.
The donations will be distributed nationally to more than 65 local recipient organizations.
Moores Clothing for Men is a national retailer of men's business attire in Canada. It was launched in 1980 and is a subsidiary of Tailored Brands, Inc. There are currently 126 Moores store locations across Canada.
